But I just a little confuse what you meant by "waiting until you upgrade at this point in time". Did you mean I need to upgrade my box to 7mode 8.2.1 first and then do a convert to cmod 8.2.1 or you meant just get a new system with Cmod install on it?
And we are ok to completely wipe out all our data and configuration to do this conversion, is it possible in this case?
Sorry just another quick question, since you mentioned that, we need a new license key for 8.2. Is that mean when we upgrade from 8.1.1RC1 7-mode to 8.2.1 RC1 7 mode, we will also need a new set of license keys in this case if we don't convert to cmod.
Hi, I think I was miss understand the term so I was thinking RC1 is the latest for 8.1.1 release at that time. Anyway, will that be a problem to now upgrade directly from this 8.1.1RC1 version to 8.2.1P2?
Is it require to run upgrade from 8.1.1RC1 to 8.1.4P4 first and then to 8.2.1P2?
Hi, Sorry, for not being clear, look like this discussion get a little further. Because the model FAS2240-4 has 2 controllers, so I was planing to convert one controller to cDot and Keep the other as 7mod for testing purpose (since these 2 controllers does not has HA config, it is independent from each other). Anyway, just wonder since i'm running 8.1.1RC1, is it possible to upgrade directly to 8.1.4P4? or I have to do some extra step like get my box update to the 8.1.1 GA version first then start the upgrade.
are they seperate FAS2240's or are they a single chassis with two controllers?
If they are two completely seperate chassis and controllers then no problem. If they are a two controllers in the same physical chassis then it wont be supported but would probably work. (possibly unpredictably) .
Upgrading from 8.1.1RC1 to 8.1.4P4 is supported as far as i remember, if you have access to myASUP then you can generate an upgrade plan from there based on your latest autosupport data. i think the jump up upgrades were from 8.0.x to 8.2.x ??
Theres no point upgrading the controller that you're planning on converting to cDoT. talk to your account team and they can get you eval licenses for cDoT you will need to zero the disks out and install the new OS. which is not that hard, but could be daunting if you've never done cDoT before.
Well, KB article mentioned says "do no attempt this procedure unless you are running 8.2". I do not have enough background to question it, although I recently installed 8.2.1 C-Mod on 3170 running 7G without any apparent issues.
